Mokume Gane is a fun and easy polymer clay technique.
Mokume Gane (pronounced moe-koo-may-GAHN-ay) translated from Japanese to mean “woodgrained metal.” When you transfer that term to polymer clay it is a technique of stacking, constructing and layering polymer clay to achieve a beautiful unique design. There are many different techniques to make Mokume Gane. My technique is a combination of several types.
If you follow the photo-tutorial below, you can make your own pretty polymer clay pendant. Choose the colors you like from the Polymer Clay sample pack. Make sure you have a variety of light and dark – three to five colors is ideal. More than 5 and it looses contrast and definition.
